It’s Saturday once again. What a difference a week makes. Different week, different mood. Last week I was feeling all mellow, in a James Taylor frame of mind. This week I’m feeling punk. And a little something else.
I’ve always said that I want to be Joan Jett when I grow up. She’s fierce and unapologetic, breaking gender stereotypes and boundaries since she started her career. Consider a tiny sample of her playlist: I Love Rock & Roll, I Hate Myself For Loving You, Bad Reputation? Please!
Mr. R. and I have had the good fortune to see her twice in concert. If you ever have the chance, run, don’t walk, because she’s amazing. The first time, we were probably twenty feet from the stage. One of the first things you notice is the way that she constantly engages her audience.
“She’s totally flirting with me,” Mr. R. said.
“No, babe, I’m pretty sure she’s flirting with me,” I replied.
Obviously, I had to include the official music video featuring Ms. Joan Jett herself. But I couldn’t resist posting this version with classic 80s and 90s movie clips. Different week, different mood. Hope you enjoy.
Oh, Mr. R……
Happy Saturday night!
